family trip

we are staying here for a second time, not for visiting college, but for Niagara Fall tour. This hotel is only 15 minutes drive away from the fall. Clean, comfortable, budget choice for family with kids. Walmart is only 3 minutes drive away.

Pleasantly Surprised

I booked this hotel while in the area to attend my granddaughter's UB orientation . Of course I was looking for a great deal, but wanted to be as close as possible to the campus .... well I found it here ! The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were extremely clean. Having booked the "basic" room, the extras were minimal, but we really just needed a convienent , clean, comfortable place to sleep, so I wasn't expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised !

You Get What You Pay For

Took a trip with the family to visit my daughter at the local college. We normally stay at higher end places, but we were looking to save some money on the hotel stay. We were also bringing our dog, which stays free here, and can cost $50-75 at other locations. I feel we did get our moneys worth out of the room and our stay. Staff was friendly, polite, and very helpful. The room was recently updated, clean, and comfortable. Bathrooms are a little tight. Bed was comfortable. My only issue is the little things that don't get included in the room without paying for them with their different room packages. Things like hair dryer, laundry bag, refrigerator, etc. Beds only came with 2 pillows. So we had 1 pillow per person. There aren't any extras in the room. Maybe they will give you one if you ask the front desk. We did ask for a hair dryer, which was not originally part of our room package. The front desk did give us one. Funny thing is that they wrote the name of the hotel on the hairdryer. I guess people take them from the hotels. I thought that this was kind of cheesy.

Very clean, comfortable, good location

The room was very clean and everything appeared modern and well-maintained. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The wifi (free) worked great. The only negative was that our room did not have shampoo or conditioner (either night) and there was not enough towels for two people to have a shower (I specified two guests). I will come back to this hotel in the future for sure.

Great for UB events

Very close to the university with a pizza/bar across the street which was very convenient. Easy access to Millersport Hwy, which gets you to UB South or 290 E/W easily. Nice room for the price, a little small but perfect for a night's stay. Room is as pictured.

Clean, great location, nothing fancy

I stayed 2 nights while attending a meeting at the university. I'm not a breakfast person, so no free breakfast didn't bother me. The room was squeaky clean, bed comfortable, and tv selection great. Small basic bathroom got the job done. Room did smell a bit musty, but humidity was terrible during my stay. All in all it worked for my needs.
